, that it could slow the economy in many areas. you have a lot of defense contractors worrying about what will happen at the turn of the new year. it is really anybody's guess. in terms of congress and whether they can come together after the election, but before every new person takes office, there is hope that congress and the white house can come to an agreement anteater postponed those spending cuts and tax increases, or come to -- and either postpone those spending cuts and tax increases, or come to some agreement. i think everyone thinks they may wait -- they may postpone and wait until the new session comes in and let them figure it out. but the so-called lame-duck session might see reasons to make a deal before the new people coming in. we will see. host: the next call comes from adam in phoenix, arizona. you say you are a student. what are you studying? caller: and studying economics. host: you have heard our conversation this morning. and what do you think? caller: i have. mr. rugaber said he was surprised with the unemployment dropping, but i was just reading about a month ago

result. i must note, though, that while the republican budget increases the budget of the defense defendant, it slashes the budget that would have protected these diplomats. >> i might note that the funding that is currently enjoyed by the state department was voted bipartisan, one more democrat voting for the appropriations than republicans. >>neil: they are putting it on all republicans and it ain't flying well with senator graham. you have heard that. what do you think of that? >>guest: as the ranking republican on the foreign operations subcommittee that funds the state department and that is a bunch of garbage. this is about -- you talk about the fiscal cliff being predictable, what is predictable with a lack of security in libya and militias are not dealt with, consulates and embassies will be attacked. we need to get to the real security situation? did people make a request? were they denied? why did susan rice come on national tv and say this was result of the video in did she say that based on intelligence for five days? she said it five days after the attack. she either
the president outlined goals during the debate, they were largely defensive. >> i think he was criticizing the ryan-esque vision on medicare and taxes. it's hard to say what else he displayed passion about. i have felt all year this is the biggest hole in their campaign. i don't think he has given americans a clear sense of what he would do to make the next four years better than the last four years. there was almost no second-term agenda. things that have been -- what is it that obama himself wants to do? certainly in this next debate he's going to be more aggressive. can he be more persuasive about his own plans? >> and mitt romney ought to be more aggressive in pushing the president to talk about his agenda. because of course the president is tying him to the ryan budget, for better or worse, what is he going to do about medicare, what's he going to do about tax reform. it is true that romney hasn't put a lot of meat on the bones when it comes to what he would do to reform the tax code. what deductions would he cap. he started getting at that a little bit this past week. well, then why
defense spending the being cut. when we have no trade agenda to speak of and our strategy isn't one of partnership but of passive ti. >> on actual foreign policy his specifics were thin amounting to deepening critical cooperation and reaffirming historic ties. susan glasser, your overall assessment of mitt romney? there was no shortage of criticism for the president. what did you make of the prescriptions romney was laying out? >> thanks, alex. you made an important point to say this isn't necessarily a fully formed recipe for what a rom uh any administration would look like. he's seeking to gain a campaign advantage over president obama rather than outline a fully formed foreign policy. i think you didn't see that today. in fact, in many ways it's still not clear whether there is much of a difference in a policy sense between barack obama and mitt romney. >> dave wood, our war correspondent extraordinaire there will be talk affidavit war in afghanistan. mitt romney had words about the president's treatment of iraq. let's focus on the afghanistan question. it's the 11-year anniversa
and he is in a dead heat, as you know right now. if he plays prevent defense and i know his consultants are going to want him to be very, very careful and not make a mistake. that's how you will lose to barack obama. in the radio clip, my point was, he is going to come out swinging and he's going to come out maybe with a few punches below the belt. romney is going to do what he did in the first debate. that is, american voters are very interested in style, maybe even more style over substance and that was the first debate you've ever seen where barack obama was outstyled. body language, mitt romney looked much more presidential and come out mitt romney and continue to strike contrasts say that we are not a government with a country, we're a country with a government and empower the people in every way possible and point out that, you know, americans have lost 40% of their net worth under this administration. as you pointed out earlier, gas prices are twice as high. we have acts of war on anniversaries of 9/11 with no response other than appointing the task force to understand whether it
enuch a tuesday but poorly designed in that they fall disproportionately on our defense budget. i think it and important that we distinguish between those things. >>neil: they hapning at the samee,houg >>gut: ttis t ne aatt? >>guest: what i advocate is we reengineer the content of the spending cuts. too much fall on defense. but the magnitude of the spending cuts isecessary and appropriate. we need to cut more than that. i think the onomwouldo fi bon i di cuts because of government is more than $100 billion too big. we need to avoithe $500 billion tax increase thecale of the tax hikes if nothing ne opwe will avoid the massive tax officer. >>neil: look forward to seeing youin person tomorrow, in kentucky. thank you very much, sir. nd ic whom n"t five." >>eric: we will look at what is going on in benghazi and the hearings and find out what we knew, who knew what, when, whether there is a coverup, what going on and why we are o no nd oat w h ys t tst pants thg mpletely different. we will look into that. then well turn our tables to some media bias. tomorrow night is the big vice president
year, the department of defense has been working closely with other agencies to understand where are the lines of responsibility when it comes to cyber defense? where do we draw those lines? how do those responsibilities get executed? as part of that effort, the department is now finalizing the most comprehensive change to our rules of engagement in cyberspace in seven years. the new rules will make clear that the department has a responsibility not only to be thin d.o.d.'s networks -- to networks, but to defend the nation and our natural -- national interests in cyberspace. these new rules makes the department more agile and provides us with the ability to confront major threats quickly. to execute these responsibilities, we must have strong organizational structures in place. three years ago, the department took a major step forward by establishing the united states cyber command. under the leadership of a four start officer who also served as the director of the national security agency, cyber command has matured into what i believe it is a world-class organization. it has the
was tuned in. he answered, he gave his side. he gave his defense. the obama -- the other night in this debate -- it was almost like there were two channels going in his mind, one on the debate and answering in the way he did, which just didn't fit together. and then when he was looking down, it's almost like something else was deeply worrying him. now, i don't know that. the point is, you know, why would he be so out of it in clearly one of the most important political moments of his life? >> sean: it is a really good question. i think -- i think he was shocked because mitt romney looked him dead in the eye, was very deep in the facts. i mean, it was just the opposites of john mccain, in the mccain debate, obama was looking mccain in the eye and mccain looking down or out at the crowd. very different in terms of the body language. on substance, romney was very knowledgeable, across the board, every question and was willing to take the president on. i don't think he is used to that? >> now, it's possible that obama realized what romney was doing and that's what troubled him. and
trillion-dollar increase in the defense budget. then you're going to keep most of the popular deductions. and then you're going to balance the budget. and then you're going to give everybody a free unicorn! that's not how it works mitt! you're lying! there is no 5 trillion-dollar in deductions that you take away from just the rich. that's preposterous. and i'm not going to let you get away with it. one wonders how long i will keep this 2 x 4 that is actually not a 2 x 4 on my shoulder, but we move forward. he says, well, before i go on to the next clip, did you know that 50% of mitt romney's benefits in his tax cuts go to the top 5%. mitt, that's who you're for. you're for the top 5%. you give them half of the tax cuts and they're 5 trillion-dollar, you're going to give $2.5 trillion to the top 5%. that's what is going on. all right before i break it. okay now let's go to the $716 billion lie. >> romney: medicare for current retirees he's cutting $716 billion from the program. >> cenk: huh, that's beard because that's turns out to be totally untrue. here's what polite cofact said about
. the department of defense have an awesome -- an office call fsap and a handle all overseas military registration. it has been running in effectively four years. it was ineffective while i was on board and is still ineffective. in 2009, i testified in front of a senate armed services committee -- a congressional arms services committee, and i explained in a nutshell what i just told you about how difficult it was to be able to register and i offered ideas of what we need to do to modify that. we've got to get more opportunity for these people to get an office available for them to check into their new duty station that will help them to register to vote and inform them on whether state laws and deadlines are. you become oblivious why you're on active duty. next thing you know, it is election time and you needed to know about the six months earlier when you were in the field. host: there is a story from the "military *." times" guest: that is just astonishing. this law passed in 2009 and it required by federal law that every installation had a voting assistance office established. it was supposed
're not better off. the president needs to do a full throated defense of his presidency and not allow governor romney to define his presidency for him. this helps significantly. >> and, chris, quickly do we hear mitt romney continue to say that president obama doesn't understand the economy? does this put him in a box? >> well, to some extent but governor romney is going to use his statistics to paint his picture and we saw that. and i think this is one of the things that i would, you know, strongly recommend to the obama campaign. romney was a blizzard of statistics in that debate but a lot of them weren't true. the president has the ability to use statistics to attack and undercut governor romney's arguments. he needs to go into the next debate. a lot of people are going to be watching given the last debate and he needs to go right at governor romney and completely destroy this notion that reinventing himself, let alone introducing and proposing the same policies are going to create a different outcome. he can definitely do that. we've seen that. >> right wing conservative talking points dyi
clear that for the first time, the president was put on the defensive as far as his record is concerned. and that's because of this bubble he's been in for the last four years and he obviously couldn't defend it. finally, piers, i thought one of the seminal moments in that debate was near the end, when jim lehrer talked about the lack of bipartisanship, the lack of sitting down together and averting this fiscal cliff that most americans know we're headed towards, and mitt talked about being governor of massachusetts, reaching across the aisle, having to negotiate, et cetera. the president's responses, sometimes you have to say no to people. is that, you know, and the fact is first two years, as mitt pointed out, first two years of his presidency, they just rammed things through without a single republican vote. so i think those were -- that makes it probably one of the really more important debates in american history and perhaps i'm exaggerating because i'm so happy. >> i can't blame you. i can't blame any republicans because it's been a very bruising few weeks for the republicans and
is shameless self-promoter. >> are you getting defensive? >> you seem defensive. >> that's the next point. career killer. >> this is a problem, too be more diplomatic don't get defensive. >> that makes perfect sense. i predict you might do the third one, mike. making a rash decision. >> yeah. many times things will come out of my mouth but here is the problem. i know it's an inappropriate thing to say but it comes out anyway. that is a rash decision. >> making rash decisions. >> it's always better. there is some reasons happened in my family life. i don't know what it was. i know that if i reacted immediately to it then it would have been bad. i waited like a day and i think i called my parents. i don't know what it was. it ended up being better that i waited. >> that's maturity. >> i know. in my 20's i wouldn't have done that. >> the next one i think is important. do i think this is even better than being a self-promoter the mistake you make is not being assertive. you should be aer assertive. you should speak up for what you want the squeaky wheel gets the worm. i may be mixing them up.
, thank you. >>> defense secretary leon panetta expressing his frustration with the leader of afghanistan after hamid karzai said the u.s. isn't doing enough to fight terrorism in afghanistan. panetta told reporters karzai shouldn't be complaining. >> we lost over 2,000 u.s. men and women. and the afghans have lost a large number of their forces in battle. those lives were lost fighting the right enemy, not the wrong enemy, and i think it would be helpful if the president every once in awhile expressed his thanks for the sacrifices that have been made by those who have fought and died for afghanistan, rather than criticizing them. >> from foreign affairs to domestic affairs. an upbeat jobs report is getting wildly different reactions. the unemployment rate fell below 8% for the first time since january of 2009. according to new numbers out yesterday, september's unemployment rate dipped to 7.8%, about 114,000 new jobs were added. president obama says the nation is moving forward, but there are still too many people out of work. mitt romney says the unemployment rate dropped mainly because
, we hear time and time again there will have to be cuts across the board, that defense is one of the big areas, bowles-simpson targeted defense i think something as the third biggest issue that needs to be addressed. do you think that we can cut the defense budget or at least maintain, keep it steady, not increase that budget, and still keep the globe safe? >> well as you know we've already been implementing $460 billion in defense cuts. there are other savings that could be made in defense. cost overruns in these weapons acquisitions is a scandal, the least noticed enormous scandal there is in america today when you look at the costs of things like the f-35 and our latest aircraft carrier with these cost plus contracts, but there are savings, but it can't be done with a medax which is what sequestration does. the secretary of defense said it would devastate our national security. senators, republican and democrat, we have asked the president to sit down with we tried this super committee and that's how we got sequestration. everybody was so sure that they would come to an agr
it as a defense business that pays a nice dividend. spanish slightly high. also had a tea bill auction out of italy today. for the first time in a while, yields were slightly high on the three-month. the 12-month yields, 1.94 from previously just under 1.7 in september. slightly higher auction yields for italy in the tea bill area. that's where we stand. some pretty low volume -- kind of waiting day, i'll put it like that. we'll wait to see what you guys get up to. but for now, back to you. >> okay, 00-ross, thank you. i read this a couple times. the obama campaign and supporters, including big wigs like david axelrod and robert gibbs along with several cable tv anchors. >> i think you know who -- ali has been tweeting. >> i doubt if that's andrew. >> would like you to believe that the bls -- that the data is handled like gold in fort knox, gun carrying guards watching their every move. highly trained white gloved super agents counting and recounting each number. when in fact, there are 60,000 households that these census workers call on the phone, try to get a hold of them over a one-week
. and politico's j. mar, jonathan mart martin. biden, first of all for the opposition, you're on defense, michael. >> always on defense. >> what does mr. ryan have to do to fend off the older, perhaps more seasoned veterans tonight? >> i think what he has to do is not get down in the weeds of the numbers but take those numbers and translate them into real people, real stories out there, very much as you saw romney do at the beginning of the delate last time. it really set the tone for where he was going to go and how he was going to frame the discussion. so i think to the extent he can do that, it gets him in some good ground. >> does he have the ability to nail the guy on where the weedy decisions on vouchers, on person 45 hood, on cuts of things like capital gains, and getting rid of estate taxes and lowering the top individual rate. all the wealth going to the top people, can biden nail him on that stuff? >> i did an interview with the vice president back in august and he hasn't done very many ser interviews. we talked about this thing. this is obviously before what happened in denver last wee
11th attack. eyewitnesss told us it was a complex assault. the compound's first line of defense easily breached. according to one of the libyan guards who was stationed at the gate armed with only a radio, the assault happened simultaneously from three different directions. he says that he initially heard chanting growing increasingly louder and then suddenly the gunfire, the rocket-propelled grenades and heavy machine gunfire all began attacking the compound. this is where ambassador chris stephens slept, part of a small suite also meant to be a makeshift safe room. here on the floor between the bed and the chair is where cnn found the ambassador's journal. it is also the same room where the ambassador was located hours after the attack first began. separated by smoke from his security detail. the u.s. initially said the assault was the result of a demonstration that turned violent. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just

they skilled in death penalty cases? did they have the skills needed to put on a new defense for you? >> absolutely not. we had these attorneys that had never dealt with a capital murder case. they didn't have experience, they didn't know what they were doing, severely underfunded. also, you know they came from a really small tight-knit community where they had to work with the same judge and same prosecutors on a daily basis. they didn't want to risk pushing too hard because to them this was just one case. they knew they were going to a have to come back and work with these same people daily basis, and didn't want to do anything that would make them angry. >> eliot: every bit of social pressure came down. you were just a small gear in a much larger system, and nobody really cared. until fortunately you got a movie that was made, and some people who were far away by happenstance in their enormous credit decided to take a hard look at this without that, what would have happened? >> oh, they would have murdered me. the state would have gotten away with murdering me. the only reason the
